The 27 Worst Fashion Mistakes Of Carmelo Anthony’s Career

For the most part, Carmelo Anthony is a pretty dapper man. When he puts the pieces together, it’s a nice fit (see above picture), but sometimes he gambles with his wardrobe and, well, he loses all of his money and gets kicked out of the casino and then a car drives by and splashes dirty mud water on him. Here are a few examples of those poor fashion choices:

27. The Beginning

If there’s one thing Carmelo loves, it’s baggy oversized suits that make him look ridiculous. It’s something Michael Jordan has been doing for many, many years. Sadly.

26. Lazy Sunday

Allen Iverson, is that you?

25. Half Camo

Justin Bieber probably loves this outfit.

24. Full Camo

Don’t ask, don’t tell…us about that outfit. Can I get an “Amen”?

23. The Stevie Wonder Years

Seriously, though, what’s up with those sunglasses?

22. Too Legit To Fit

That hat just ruined an otherwise decent “lounging around” outfit.

21. Ugly Sweater

I don’t know what’s going on with that sweatshirt design, but it is not working. Especially when Swizz Beatz is right next to him in a tux.

20. Hello? Is It Me You’re Looking For?

Are those real? Because they look like the 3D glasses that you get at a movie theater. Also, hello hat.

19. RIP Ray Charles

If Ray Charles wasn’t already dead, this outfit would have killed him. (Great idea with a tribute, just terrible execution.)

18. Long Shorts

OK, are those pants or are they shorts?

17. And a Loooooooong Jacket

This is the exact opposite of “slim fit.”

16. Hobo Jacket

I’m not sure which is worse: the design or the fit.

15. Red Stripe

The thing about this is, you KNOW Carmelo was loving this look. Which is hilarious.

14. The Shane Sparks

Am I right?! Carmelo looks exactly like Shane Sparks — former judge on America’s Best Dance Crew.

13. Towel on the Head

I remember when this look was cool. Wait. Nope. Nevermind.

All day everyday. Baby, cuz Melo’s a thug.

Wouldn’t change for the world. Baby, cuz Melo’s a thug.

10. Thug Life

That’s right you heard. Carmelo Anthony is most definitely not a thug.

9. The White Bucket Hat

There are literally hundreds of pictures of Carmelo Anthony in a bucket hat. It was probably his favorite possession at the time.

8. The Black Bucket Hat

Changing colors won’t help you, Melo!

7. The Plaid Bucket Hat

I guarantee he just saw the color beige and was like, “Yep. This outfit is dope.”

6. The Yellow Bucket Hat

He literally looks like he came straight out of a ’90s Nickelodeon TV show.

5. Care Bear

I can’t believe he actually wore this.

4. The White House Headband

I didn’t need to circle him here, since he obviously sticks out as the only person WEARING A HEADBAND WITH THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

3. Colonel Mustard

It’s like he’s on the red carpet while on a safari.

2. Parachute Pants

Hahahaha. Are you kidding me? You can fit a small village in those pants. He’s lucky a big wind didn’t take him right up into the clouds. LOL. Quit playing, Melo.

1. World War II Fighter Pilot

Wow! Great Halloween costume. What? It’s NOT Halloween? Well then, you, sir, are bad at dressing yourself.
